“How can God be good if there’s so much suffering in the world?” This is an age old question that’s caused much conversation over the years – and we want to add to it. This week we start a mini 2-week series with Dr. Andreas Köstenberger. The purpose of these two weeks is to take popular skeptical and atheistic assertions that seemingly “debunk” God, the Bible, and Jesus, and see if they’re legit. This week we tackle the issue of God and suffering, as well as the question “Who picked the New Testament books, and where’d they come from?”
Who’s Our Guest?
Dr. Andreas Köstenberger (Ph.D., Trinity Evangelical Divinity School) is Senior Research Professor of New Testament and Biblical Theology and Director of Ph.D. Studies at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. He is the Founder and President of Biblical Foundations, an organization devoted to encouraging a return to the biblical foundations in the home, the church, and society. He has also authored, edited, or translated over twenty books.
Our entire conversation is based on the book Truth Matters: Confident Faith in a Confusing World. You should definitely check it out. It’s a short and important book.
